Yesterday, I published my first trips of 2018 post. Soon thereafter, I received an email from United Airlines offering baggage delivery from my destination airport. This was the second time that I received such an e-mail, I disregarded the first one. United offers the service through Bags Inc. website, Make Travel Easier.
To the point, the service states that it is there to erase unnecessary wait time at baggage claim. Bags will be delivered in under four hours, if the delivery destination is less than 40 miles from the airport. The delivery goes to six hours, if the destination is more than 40 but less 100 miles from the airport. The service is offered at more than 250 locations.
Below are the rates for the service:
- 1 bag – $29.95
- 2 bags – $39.95
- 3-8 bags – $49.95
Personally, I do not have a need for such a service because I tend to travel with a carry on and a backpack. If this is something that may interest you, check it out.
